This review is long overdue as we hired Clive as a tour guide during our honeymoon in April 2014. Clive drove us around for two days. The first day we went on The Cape Point Tour: Cape Point, the Cape of Good Hope, an AMAZING seafood lunch, as well as a trip to Boulders Beach to see the Penguin Colony.... More

Clive and Godfrey were excellent, and went far above and beyond to meet our needs when we were unexpectedly delayed and a member of our party experienced mobility problems that made it difficult for him keep up with the rest of us. Clive provided loads of useful information and historical context, and Godfrey's personal connection to Langa township made this... More

We booked a private tour of the Cape Point area with this company. We have only positive things to report, a friendly and professional service. Clive, the guide, had a detailed and broad knowledge of the area, geology, history, wildlife and plants. We would not hesitate to us this operation in the future.

My mum, brother and I spent a couple of days with Clive in town and then down on the Cape. We can't fault the package he put together for us. Clive is really easy going and it felt like we were travelling with a 'mate' - he is obviously very experienced and had done all the organisation behind the scenes... More

My sister and I booked the Cape Town City Tour and the Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope Tour with Clive in January 2015. We even had him pick us up at the airport upon our arrival to Cape Town and got a quick mini-tour of the city to get our bearings. I have been on many private guided... More

We had the most fortunate experience of booking a full day tour with Clive for a tour of Cape Town as well as a Cape Peninsula Tour. He was absolutely outstanding and made our day with him one of the highlights of the trip. He catered to our every need and personally customized our tour to go to the places... More

Clive took us on a tour around Cape Town Peninsular. Although the views were incredible and we had a great day out, we struggled to get information out from Clive and it seemed as if we was a little bored and over it. Our pick up was timely and efficient, but once we were in the car, dead silence until... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I am really upset that I failed to deliver anything other than excellent service. As a principle, I endeavour to deliver a client orientated and engaging, authentic experience as opposed to generic scripted commentary. I love what I do very much and I love to share my knowledge...

We booked Clive for a day out around the Cape and a couple of hikes. We did a hike at Cape point, a walk through the botanical gardens,and a hike at least half way up the Lions Head. In between Clive showed us the sites and was full of local knowledge. The car was great and comfortable for the whole... More

We booked Clive for a day and a half - and in that time he managed to take us round everything we could have wanted to see. But the whole thing was paced so well, that it felt unrushed and very comfortable. He had clearly taylored the day for our needs - and adapted his initial plans, when he realised... More

We did a whole day tour of the Cape Peninsula. Our guide was Clive De Bruyne. We found him very friendly. I had planned the itinerary well in advance and Clive was both helpful and accommodating. Overall an excellent and very happy experience and when we revisit Cape Town one day, we will use Clive's services again.
